Friday Tip

Dear Constant Reader,

It’s Friday again! Since I’m teaching a series of boa classes this month (Beautiful Boas, starts this Sunday!), I thought I’d give you a boa tip:

Want a big, fluffy boa without breaking the bank? Braid three thinner boas together.

Secure the ends with some hair elastics and you’re good to go! If the boa starts getting skimpy from feather loss (an inevitability), just thread another one through the existing braid.

Remember that the resulting boa is going to be shorter because of the braiding, so you might want to add some sort of extension on each end, like a big tassel made of coordinating marabou mini-boas.
